Guidolin laughs off Napoli talk

Francesco Guidolin laughed off reports he’s heading to Napoli and celebrated Udinese’s club record seventh consecutive win.

This morning the newspapers claimed Guidolin was going to be the replacement for Walter Mazzarri.

“I know absolutely nothing about this. I see my future at Udine, as this is my natural habitat and I have no regrets,” the Coach told Sky Sport Italia.

“In the past I might’ve wanted to challenge myself at a bigger club, but I decided to stay at Udine and I hope the club feels the same way. Of course, we could have a massive fight next week!”

The Friulani are heading into Europe after a seventh consecutive victory, fighting back to beat Atalanta 2-1.

“It is an important record and a wonderful achievement. I am in charge of a marvellous group of players and it’s special to qualify for Europe when there are only five available places.”

Antonio Di Natale bagged both goals, his 22nd of the Serie A season, but was stretchered off after a knock.

“I hope it’s nothing serious. He was in pain when he went off, but later this evening he was more relaxed. We’ll have to wait a few days for tests, but I am optimistic.”
